Clear aligners in South Molton

Aligner appliances are ideally suited to adult patients whose life-style or work commitments make it difficult for them to wear more visible conventional fixed appliances.

    How do aligners work?

    As with any other form of orthodontics, a proper orthodontic assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan is essential to successful aligner treatment. An accurate impression of the mouth is used to create the customised aligners. Each appliance moves the teeth a small distance towards the intended position before moving on to the next in the series until the final result is achieved. Aligners need to be worn full-time, day and night except for meal times.

      When should aligners be used?

      Aligners are best suited to simple cases needing minor alignment of teeth without extractions. It may be possible to carry out more complex treatments but an ideal result may require a short course of fixed appliances to upright the roots of the teeth.

      Routine aligner treatments include:

      • Mild dental irregularity
      • Mild crowding which can be corrected with a slight expansion of the dental arch
      • Mild crowding which can be corrected with minor reductions in tooth width (IPR)
      • Mild spacing
